Owning both EF 16-35mm & EF-S 10-22mm
« on: November 15, 2013, 05:50:23 PM »
So I have both a FF and crop camera and generally carry both in the kit.

In terms of UWA lenses, I currently only own a EF-S 10-22mm because the distortion appears quite low @ 10mm compared to 16mm at FF from online comparisons I've seen, likely largely due to the nature of crop.

I do appreciate the greater speed of f/2.8 on the 16-35 and realize a lot of the distortion can be cleaned up in post, but I am thinking the 10-22 would still be nice to have for shots that need less post cleanup...  Maybe spend the money I'd spend on a 16-35 on the 8-15 fisheye instead for intended distortion.  Or perhaps a 24mm 1.4 where the speed would be more noticable in reducing DOF.

Anyway, what are thoughts for those that owned both on merits of EF-S 10-22mm vs. EF 16-35mm f/2.8 II?  Let's assume the 10-22 would be mounted on a newer APS-C like 70D vs. 16-35 on 5DMKIII.  I am tempted to sell the 10-22 for the 16-35, but I am not sure it would really be a clear upgrade due to the distortion differences.  If its not a clear upgrade, it would be hard for me to justify the price given my dual kit.

Comments?

Everything you say makes sense, but, you can't really use the 10-22 on a FF while you can use the 16-35 on an APS-C body (effective range 26-56).  Instead of needing 2 bodies to get a wide angle option, you only need one.  And, the 16-35 is faster.

So, part of this depends on what you have glass wise and part on what you are shooting.  As far as any distortion is concerned, LR, PS, DXO and other options deal with this quite effectively.  I owned and really liked the 10-22 when I had a crop body, but am really happier with FF.

I sold my 10-22 after getting the 16-35 II.  Even with the slight loss of sharpness resulting from distortion correction, the 16-35 yielded sharper images, with better color.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

10-22 is the paradox lens to me. It shows you that you would benefit from FF by being "too great" for most ASPC (spent an infuriating night in Halong bay to minimize the damn noise) but once you got FF you really miss it... :(
